On December 4, 2012, CASCO students took to the stage at the Delta Ottawa City Centre to raise a record breaking $45,080.61 for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). The theme of this year’s event was “Time Warp”, where all performances were focused around the 6 last decades.
In preparation for this event, CASCO students spend countless hours auditioning, choreographing, and organizing this annual gala show that focuses on the talents of Telfer School students, and raises money for CHEO as well as a CHEO family in need.
For the past 13 years, CASCO has been a major event for the Telfer School of Management that is entirely choreographed, organised and executed by like-minded Telfer School students. It is a spectacular show of talent and philanthropy that brings together over 500 people including prominent community leaders and ambassadors for CHEO. Among the attendees this year were Mayor Jim Watson, CHEO Foundation COO Kevin Keohane, CHEO Foundation President and CEO Fred Bartlett, Dean François Julien, Ottawa City Councillor Mathieu Fleury, Max Keeping and CASCO co-founders Alexandre St-Jean and Tuan Nguyen. This event is also an excellent networking opportunity for Telfer School students who will be graduating in the near future.
The Telfer School remains very proud of its CASCO students for the time and energy that they focus on this event ever year and the positive impact that they leave on our community.
